Amazing Solar Power Bikini

It might look like an average bikini but it’s actually a solar-powered swimsuit – capable of charging your ipod and your camera. The crazy concept is the brainchild of Brooklyn-based designer, Andrew Schneider and is crafted using photo-voltaic panels sewn together with conductive thread. The bizarre bikinis – which are made to measure – cost more than £120 each to make and Andrew spends up to 80 hours painstakingly hand-stitching each set.
